Mental Immunity is a practical guide to spotting and removing bad ideas, a stirring call to transcend our petty tribalisms, and a serious bid to bring humanity to its senses.
Some influential assumptions are suppressing our “immune response” to dangerous ideas. They prevent us from normalizing critical thinking and leave us vulnerable to mind-parasites.
Fortunately, there’s a cure. In this lively and uplifting book, Andy Norman demonstrates how we can inoculate our minds against the worst forms of ideological contagion. He then develops a "mind vaccine" capable of mitigating confirmation bias, motivated reasoning, and conspiracy thinking.
